Income Tax employees union complains of “unbearable workload”


The Income Tax Employees Federation and Income Tax Gazetted Officers Association (AP and Telangana) today urged the Centre to fill up the vacancies and take other steps to ease the workload in the wake of demonetisation.

There were almost 30-35 per cent vacancies at ACIT/DCIT level and first supervisory position like JCIT/Addl CIT, while at the staff level around 40 per cent posts were vacant, it said in a release. The employees were under “unbearable extra workload”, it added.

The issues of “faulty cadre structure”, promotions, recruitment, inadequate infrastructure including severe office space crunch and poor Internet and intranet connectivity should be dealt with, it said.
